About Us

St.GFRA Inc. was formed in 1974 with a charter to provide referees to the various competitions run by the St. George Soccer Association.

As an affiliated member of Football NSW, our members are also appointed to officiate at the various State run competitions and to control the overflow of State League games that would be normally covered the NSW State League Football Referees Inc.

St. George is a small branch in numbers, but leads the way in NSW with regards to the development of referees.

We are proud that we have had a member selected by FIFA to attend preparation seminars prior to the 2010 World Cup.

Since our inception, many members have been rewarded with higher honours with inclusion on Hyundai A League, National Youth League and Westfield Women's League panels and National Talent Acceleration programs and officiated in the premier State run competitions.

St. George referees have also been successful in winning and attaining high rankings in the various State Referee competitions.

Our coaching panel is dedicated to the development and progression of our members and their efforts and commitment to this cause are the envy of many throughout the country.

The coaching panel consists of past and current referees, some of whom have not only achieved success in the local district but have also been elevated to FIFA level. We are also in a position to utilise current FIFA accredited instructors on a consultancy and advisory basis.
